We8leyan Making Big
, Strides.
Tonight the renowned Ex-Uni's In
vade the Cornhusker camp for a bat
tle royal. With a month and a half
of practice including a near dozei
contests, they have a decided edge on
the 'varsity quintet.
The entire squad are seasoned
players and without a doubt will ex
hibit a better brand of basket ball
than the student body are prone to
Wednesday eveniilg the Council
Blurts' "Y" five went down to defeat
before the Ex-Uni's in which contest
Nagl scored nine field goals.
However the Cornhuskers in the
past week have been pushed by Coach
Stiehm to the utmost of their capacity
and everyone can rest assured that
tho bunch will acquit themselves
creditably. The probable lineup will
be as follows:
Nebraska. Ex.Uni.
Haskell rf Nagl
Underwood If Waugh
Stryker c...(Capt.) Anthoa
Hawkins rg Jones
Carrier (Capt) . . lg Amberson
Substitutes: Nebraska Hyde,
Meier, Keofesv Howe, Kavan.
Wesleyan a Dangerous Rival.
Wesleyan the next opponent of Ne
braska administered a drubbing to
University of Omaha, that was a rev
elation to Coyote followers, by win
ning, 2 to 22.
The Coyotes pul up an exceedingly
fast and snappy game, completely be
wildering the Omahana with their
passing and dribbling. Vlfquain
guard and Kester forward, for Wes
leyan, each threw eight field goals.
With tho CoyoteH In such form they
bid fair to give the Cornhuskers a
run for the honors Saturday evening
when they clash in the Armory.

Have You Noticed The Owls?
Perched upon lofty projections of thosoutliBide of the library
buildings are two wise old stone owls. Perhaps not fifty students In
the university have ever noticed them. Nevertheless .they are there
and seem to have had a purpose in taking this elevated position. No
doubt they were originally live birds who halted for a brief rest on
tho cornice of the library, and became petrified in the unaccus
tomed frigidity of Nebraska's changeable climate
Now they remain immovable upon their aerial perches and rep
resent the spirit of wlsdow Inherent in the University in general and
the library in particular. As birds of the night they are patron
deities of ye burners of the midnight oil who keep their lamps
constantly burning before the shrine of knowledge.
Each day In the library may be seen scores or diligent students
hard at work cramming for the examinations so soon to be hero.
Thoy do not realize that the rare old birds above are tolepathically
Instilling knowledge into their weary craniums to assist them to sur
mount the obstacles in their paths. Even the confirmed Bluffer should
become Interested in these learned fowls, and long Tor owlish char
acteristics, in order that he may pass the milestone of his college
career which he reaches nt this time. Buster.
Head of Student Work of National
Presbyterian Church Gives Live
Talk at Convocation.
"LKe and Its Opportunities," was
the topic of a very Interesting addrosB
particularly to tho studontB, delivered
at convocation thlB morning by tho
Rev. Dr. R. A. L. Jarvla of Phlladel
phia. Dr. Jarvis is on tour of tho col
leges and universities of tho country
in the interest of student work. Whllo
in the city he has spoken before tho
public schools and tho churches.
In his address this morning he said
in part:
"There have never been better op
portunities presented to us as there
are at present and I trust you are
availing yourself of them. Opportun
ities are not worth while If we don't
use them. Today while opportuni
ties knocks arlBO to the call. Life is
an opportunity to be something. But
getting an education is not every
thing it will not make you a suc
cess unless you have character.
"1 hope most of you have decided
upon a career. There are many doors
closed on you such as in medicine ,or
law, as these professions are over
crowded, yet these is an opening In
these professions for any of deter
mination, for they need men big
enough fo rthe job. You ought not
to decide to be a lawyer today, a doc
tor tomorrow and so on, but be some
thing and be It all tho time.
